In “Borderline: Trump’s asylum crackdown,” O’Toole investigated President Trump's effort to choke off asylum, a push that reaches beyond the border and upends longstanding U.S. policy at the same time as it transforms the region into global purgatory.
O’Toole found that Homeland Security officials enforcing this campaign through policies known as “metering,” and “Remain in Mexico,” are violating U.S. law, with a rising human cost. Along the border, U.S. officials are denying asylum seekers’ rights and knowingly putting them at risk of physical harm — against federal regulations and the laws that make up the foundation of the U.S. immigration system.
